Will Mohs Surgery Leave a scar?

Mohs surgery does leave a scar. Most doctors strive to preserve as much healthy skin as possible. The skin can take a year to heal so many people wait and see improvement over time. For those who feel that the scarring is too great, a plastic surgeon can do a great job of repairing the damaged area. It is important to work with a fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon.

My sister had Mohs surgery. At first, it looked really bad, and then I was surprised that it healed really well and doesn’t look that bad now.
You should always go to a qualified doctor who performs the surgery often and you can always consult a plastic surgeon or dermatologist if you don’t like the scar afterward.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
